Cognitive Brain Mapping Group

The Cognitive Brain Mapping Group (CBMG) brings together labs on campus with a common interest in neuroimaging of cognition. These groups interact at the CBMG colloquia series. Although many of these groups conduct research using MRI at the Center for Translational Imaging, labs are encouraged to present research using other methods such as EEG, TMS, eyetracking and behavior.
